Geotag plugin

logo Geotagging of pages is described at various sites (Geotagging, geo-tag.de, geotags.com, geourl.org). In essence there are two ways (both of which are supported by this plugin) to geotag a page, one using a microformat, the other using meta tags in the page header.

For a blog post on this please see: http://www.geodienstencentrum.nl/blog/webmapping/dokuwiki/2014-07-16/dokuwikispatial_geotag.html

Issues

  • umlauts are not parsed (2015/04/04 14:09)
    text with umlauts etc. is not parsed, eg. `Irreler Wasserfälle` results in `Irreler Wasserf: 49º51'21.6"N;6º26'42"E` probably the regex for placename is too restrictive (https://sourceforge.net/p/dokuwikispatial/code/HEAD/tree/trunk/geotag/src/syntax/geotag.php#l76)
